Side by Side Pearl Dick


Welcome Everyone Dear Friends, We are delighted to welcome you to the 18th Annual Glass Auction & Gala! The need for the National Liberty Museum’s educational programs is greater than we ever imagined when the Museum was founded eighteen years ago. We are teaching young people the importance of civic purpose, the ideals of liberty and democracy on which our country was founded, and the leadership skills that will help them succeed at school and as community leaders. Your participation in our Auction is critical to our success. 100% of the proceeds from tonight’s event support our education and outreach programs. It’s because of your generosity that we’ve been able to serve more than 500,000 young people and 800,000 visitors with our effective programs, both at the Museum and in schools throughout the greater Philadelphia area. Our programs include Museum Learning Experiences that advance young people’s social and emotional learning and leadership skills; PA- and NJstate approved professional development for educators; and our yearlong Young Heroes Outreach Program (YHOP) offered for free to Philadelphia’s underserved schools. Post-program evaluations of YHOP have demonstrated visible, sustained changes in young people’s attitudes and behaviors. We’re proud to honor our 2017 Heroes of Liberty Sandy and Steve Sheller, who have been generous friends of the Museum for many years. We’re delighted to recognize Pearl Dick as our 2017 Artist as Hero. We are grateful to her and to the hundreds of other artists whose works support our educational mission. We hope you have an unforgettable evening and are inspired by the work of the National Liberty Museum. Sincerely,

Gwen Borowsky CEO

Thank you

to our Sponsor Gift Artist Will Dexter studied marine biology and psychology in college, and pursuing a career in art was not even on his radar. The turning point came for Will when one of his professors showed him some slides of glass art. He knew instantly that he wanted to devote his life to creating something beautiful. He packed his bags and headed straight to Helena, Montana to attend a three-week course in glass blowing. After that, he enrolled in the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia.

In 1978, Will headed to the Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle to work as a Teacher’s Assistant for Dale Chihuly. Chihuly then invited him to apply for a position at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), where he headed the Glass Department. About three years later, Will decided to return to the Philadelphia area. He started his own studio called Taylor Backes. He wanted it to be a place where other artists could join him and all would have the freedom to create whatever they wished. Will became a glass blower, describing the process as an “athletic activity that yields a beautiful creation at the finish line.” Today, Taylor Backes remains much the same as it was, more like an atelier than a studio. It’s where artists go to create limited runs to sell at reasonable prices or to figure out techniques that they struggle with on their own. We are delighted to present our 2017 Glass Auction Sponsors at the Emerald Level and higher with a beautiful piece created by Will Dexter. 7


We put you in the story of liberty ABOUT THE MUSEUM The National Liberty Museum (NLM) located in historic Philadelphia is a unique cultural attraction and learning center where visitors become part of the story of liberty. We stress that liberty is not a relic of the past; liberty is alive, but fragile and dependent on every one of us to keep it strong. To spark a person’s inner hero, we surround our visitors with inspirational sights, sounds, and stories the moment they enter our Welcome Gallery. Glass art is prominently displayed throughout the Museum, as it exemplifies the fragility of freedom. With an engaging blend of entertainment and inspiration, the NLM enables visitors of all ages and backgrounds to explore the meaning of liberty and to learn how each of us can “Live Like a Hero.”

EDUCATION In addition to conducting educational tours for groups that visit the Museum, our Education Department facilitates outreach programs at schools, professional development workshops for educators, diversity and inclusion training for adult professionals, and annual awards programs that recognize everyday heroes who have demonstrated outstanding citizenship. Our educators are a skilled and creative team dedicated to teaching our next generation civic responsibility and positive character. In 2011, our educators piloted the Young Heroes Outreach Program (YHOP) in three Philadelphia schools, bringing our curriculum to underserved communities with intensive, yearlong training for both students and teachers. Now entering its seventh year, this effective civic leadership program has grown to 18 schools and impacted more than 4,000 students and their teachers in Philadelphia and Delaware. In post-program surveys of the students involved in last year’s program, 99% of faculty advisors reported that their students experienced transformative growth as an outcome of the program. A recently completed independent evaluation of YHOP confirmed its positive impact on students’ understanding and application of core values like empathy, responsibility, respect, integrity, and courage. The study findings suggest that YHOP can make a longterm positive impact on students’ behavior and achievement. “The National Liberty Museum taught me that you can be a hero no matter what age, what size, or what race you are.” - 4th grader, Marshall St. Elementary School

HEROES of LIBERTY SANDY & STEVE SHELLER The National Liberty Museum (NLM) is delighted to recognize Steve and Sandy Sheller as our 2017 Heroes of Liberty. It is with great pleasure that we present the Heroes of Liberty award this evening to Sandy and Steve, whose profound charitable and civic contributions to our community exemplify the core values of the Museum. Every day at the NLM, our educators teach young people the personal qualities that are critical to the health and well-being of liberty, such as leadership, responsibility, empathy, integrity, and active citizenship. Over the decades, Sandy and Steve have put those traits to work in their tireless efforts to address economic and social disparity across Philadelphia and throughout the tristate area. Through their professional work, their philanthropy, their personal advocacy, and their volunteerism, the Shellers have improved the lives of countless underserved individuals and families across the region. As professionals, the Shellers are committed to justice, community service, and acting as voices for the voiceless in our region. Throughout his career as an award-winning attorney focusing on personal injury, class action, and whistleblower cases, Steve Sheller has maintained a commitment to serving as a principled, fervent champion for those harmed by the negligence or intentional acts of corporations or others. Accolades he has recently received include the Legal Intelligencer Lifetime Achievement Award and an Honorary Doctorate Degree from Drexel University for being a champion of the disenfranchised. Sandy Sheller, an award-winning art and family therapist, has spent her career creating opportunities for underserved and traumatized individuals and families to improve their lives and access the highest-quality care and services available. The city of Philadelphia adopted her traumainformed network group to support homeless services providers, and her parenting curriculum, co-developed with Karen Hudson from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and noted as a promising program nationally, is being used in a number of family homeless shelters. Through their philanthropy from The Sheller Family Foundation, Sandy and Steve support projects that improve the area’s education, justice, and philanthropic landscape. So many of our region’s non-profits have been transformed thanks to the support of the Sheller Family 10


Foundation. Some of the Foundation’s most recent projects include establishing The Stephen and Sandra Sheller Center for Social Justice at Temple University Beasley School of Law, The Stephen and Sandra Sheller 11th Street Family Health Services Center of Drexel University, The Stephen and Sandra Sheller Scholarship for the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Foundation, and The Stephen and Sandra Sheller Commons of the South Philadelphia Free Library. The Shellers are long-time friends and supporters of the National Liberty Museum. They helped establish our “Civilian in Peace, Soldier in War” permanent exhibit honoring the Pennsylvania National Guard, the nation’s oldest Guard Unit. Sandy and Steve currently sponsor our Young Heroes program, which empowers young people to be civic leaders who use their liberty constructively to make a positive impact on their world, at Tanner Duckrey Elementary School in North Philadelphia. The Shellers chose the school because it is located in one of the poorest communities in the city and 100% of its students are disadvantaged. The Shellers’ involvement with the Young Heroes program has gone well beyond their financial support. For the past two years, Sandy and Steve have profoundly contributed to the Duckrey Young Heroes’ projects. Last year, when the 4th graders initiated a letter-writing campaign about gun violence and its impact in their neighborhood, the Shellers stepped in to deliver the students’ letters to the desks of Senator Casey and President Obama, both of whom wrote personal letters back to the students. This year, the Duckrey Young Heroes launched a petition for a badly needed new playground. Once again, the Shellers got involved, and thanks to their efforts Council President Darrell Clarke met with their kids and has assured them that their playground will become a reality. Sandy and Steve, you have stood by and encouraged our students, and you are outstanding role models. Your tenacious activism, philanthropy, and service have made our region a better place to live in for more than 30 years. Tonight, on behalf of a very grateful community, we are honored to recognize you as our 2017 Heroes of Liberty. Thank you for being such wonderful friends to the Museum; we are grateful that your generosity has enabled us to positively impact our community and inspire the next generation of civic leaders.

ARTIST as HERO PEARL DICK Pearl Dick is an artist, activist and educator based in Chicago, Illinois. She is passionate about glass art’s ability to “connect with all types of people as a teaching tool, a means to heal, and as a unique and magical outlet for creative expression.” In all of her work, she is inspired by what connects us, not what separates us. Pearl says she “is on a lifelong quest to create art that speaks to our unity, harmony, discord, similarities and differences.” Born in Toledo, Ohio, Pearl has been making art her whole life—from the moment she could hold a pencil, she has been drawing. However, it wasn’t until her mentor and high school art teacher encouraged her to take a tour of Alfred University in upstate New York that Pearl saw glass blowing/casting for the very first time. She describes the experience as “a light switched on,” and she’s been working with glass ever since. In addition to pursuing her aesthetic goals with glass, Pearl describes her work with the medium as a “way to address societal and systemic issues that I am looking to change in the world.” After graduating from Alfred University with concentrations in glass art and oil painting, Pearl traveled across the country to work in glass studios from coast to coast. She eventually settled in Chicago, where community outreach became a central focus in her life. In addition to her work as a teaching artist with After School Matters®, a non-profit organization that provides life-changing after-school and summer programs to more than 15,000 Chicago teens each year, Pearl co-founded her own studio and program, Project FIRE, in partnership with ArtReach Chicago and Healing Hurt People-Chicago. In 2015, Pearl was introduced to Dr. Bradley Stolbach, a University of Chicago clinical psychologist specializing in the treatment of young people who have experienced violence-related trauma. Together, they developed an unconventional new program that offers healing through glassblowing. Project FIRE (Fearless Initiative for Recovery and Empowerment) combines glass art education with mentoring, psychoeducation, and employment opportunities. In addition to receiving counseling and 12


instruction, teens earn money for participating in the program and can sell the work they produce. Teen participants, who are known as “FIREwalkers,” say that the program helps them develop their creativity and envision a positive future for themselves. In the words of FIREwalker and peer leader Roberto Don’t Let Me Down by “Smokey” Cisneros, “wanting to get better so I can be Pearl Dick on page 48 successful as an artist in the future helps me stay out of the streets.” Pearl notes that “most of the people we work with here come in with a very limited sense of what their future can hold and leave with a much broader range of options for themselves.” Pearl’s glass sculptures are featured in galleries and private collections around the world. She has taught glass sculpture at Penland School of Crafts, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Ox-bow, and Water-Street Glass, as well as in her own studio in Chicago. Currently, she is the Artistic Director of ArtReach Chicago, a non-profit organization providing art and safe space to people of all ages and backgrounds throughout the city. Pearl has been a longtime supporter and friend of the National Liberty Museum. Her work was recently featured in our temporary exhibit Transparency, the nation’s first museum exhibit of studio glass works produced exclusively by artists in the LGBTQ+ community. We are proud to honor her as our 2017 Artist as Hero.

HOW THE AUCTION WORKS 1. BID CARDS AND BIDDING NUMBERS When you check in you will be given a bid card. All sales will be recorded and tracked using the bidder number printed on your card. If you registered to come with a guest, you and your guest will share the same bidder number unless you requested otherwise in your registration form. See Silent and Live Auction sections for information on the bidding process. 2. EXPRESSPAY™ You will be offered ExpressPay™ service when you check in. By registering for ExpressPay,™ you can avoid standing in line to pay for and collect your purchases at the end of the night. To sign up for ExpressPay,™ provide our registration assistant with your Visa, MasterCard, American Express or a signed check made out to National Liberty Museum. This information will be kept on file for the evening and at the close of the auction your purchases will be totaled and charged as directed. When you are ready to leave the auction, proceed directly to the ExpressPay™ Art Pick-Up station to collect your purchases and leave the auction without having to stop at the cashier. For your convenience, a copy of the bid sheet for each item you purchase will be delivered to you at your table during the live auction. We will mail you a statement of your purchases in the week following the event. If you do not purchase any items, your charge slip or check will be marked void and returned to you by mail. 3. SILENT AUCTION 3a. BIDDING The silent auction opens at 5:00pm. Each item offered in the silent auction will have a bid form adjacent to it. To place a bid, write your bidder number on the form opposite the amount you want to bid. Please press hard - you are making three copies. You do not have to take the next available bid amount on the form, but may skip ahead to a higher bid amount. If you emerge as the highest bidder at the close of the auction, your bid constitutes a legal contract to purchase the item. 122

3b. MINIMUM BID A minimum bid amount has been established for each silent auction item. You may not bid below this amount. 3c. GUARANTEED PURCHASE To guarantee that you are the successful bidder on a silent auction item, enter your bid number in the box next to the “Buy It Now!” amount. This instantly makes you the owner of the item. No additional bids will be accepted. 3d. SILENT AUCTION CLOSING You may bid on any item in that silent auction section until that section is closed. At the posted closing time, a silent auctioneer will circle the top bid on each form and collect the forms. A notice announcing the successful bidder will be left by each item so that you may check on the bidding results. In the event of a dispute over a silent auction bid, oral bids may be taken at the discretion of the silent auctioneer, but only from those who have already placed written bids. The silent auctioneer will make the final decision as to the successful bid. 4. LIVE AUCTION You may preview all live auction items beginning at 5pm. To ensure that the auction concludes at a reasonable hour, the live auction will begin during dinner and continue without interruption until all items have been auctioned. To bid in the live auction, hold your bid card up high with the number toward the auctioneer. Either the auctioneer or a bid spotter can accept your bid. The auctioneer will set bidding increments and reserves the right to reject any bid which is merely a fractional advance over the previous bid. The highest bid acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be deemed a legal agreement and constitute the bidder as the purchaser of the lot. 5. PAYMENT AND REMOVAL Cash, personal checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover,


and American Express will be accepted as payment. Successful ExpressPay™ bidders will receive a copy of the bid form at their table shortly after the close of bidding for the item. Bidders may then proceed to the Pick-up Station, collect their purchases, and depart. If you are not using ExpressPay™, you may stop at the cashier anytime after 9 pm to receive a statement of your purchases and make your payment. You may then proceed to the Pick-up Station. All purchases are final and must be paid for and removed from the premises before the end of the evening. Items which are not removed will be shipped to the purchaser at the purchaser’s expense. No exchanges or refunds will be allowed. 6. SALES TAX AND DEDUCTABILITY The National Liberty Museum is a registered 501c3 charitable organization. If the price you pay for a piece exceeds the fair market value of the piece as stated in the auction catalog, the excess portion of the price may be deductible as a charitable contribution. Please consult with your tax adviser or preparer for details. 7. SERVICES FEE There is a 13% Services Fee which covers the auctioneering services, computer equipment and operators, and consulting and logistics. On your auction statement, this fee is called “administrative and data processing fee.” 8. SHIPPING The National Liberty Museum can provide shipping services for your auction purchases. We recommend that, whenever possible, you take your purchases home with you. This will ensure the safest transport of your delicate glass items. Packing for purchaser take-home is provided at no extra charge by the National Liberty Museum.

charges are not included in the purchase price and will be invoiced separately. The National Liberty Museum will use its discretion to ship the piece in the safest and most economical way. 9.

GLASS GLOSSARY Acid-etching: Refers to the cutting away of the glass surface with the use of hydrofluoric acid to create designs or textures.

Fusing: The joining of glass in a kiln. The temperature and length of time heat is applied can be altered to achieve a variety of glass effects.

Caneworking: Cane refers to rods of glass with color and can be comprised of a single color or multiple colors arranged in a pattern. These rods are used to add intricate patterns such as stripes, twists or images to other glass objects.

Gather: A gob of molten glass that is gathered from a pot or furnace onto the end of a blowpipe (hollow metal rod) or punty rod (solid metal rod).

Cold shop: A glassworking studio where nonheat related glass processes called coldworking techniques (see below) take place. Coldworking techniques: The processes by which glass is cut, carved, engraved, polished or etched. The equipment used may include machinery such as lathes, diamond saws, various “lapping� wheels and sanders, drills and grinders, in addition to hand tools and abrasive files, sponges and papers. Enameling: Glass enamel consists of finely ground colored glass that is mixed with a binder, applied with a brush or by other means and heat-fused onto a glass surface. Engraving: The process by which glass is incised with shallow or deep cuts using a variety of methods. Engraving tools include copper wheels and others made from diamonds, stone, and metal. Loose abrasives such as aluminum oxide are also used for sandblast engraving. Flashing: 1) The reheating of a furnace-worked piece (blown or hot-sculpted in the hot shop) during the forming process to make the glass more pliable so it can be further manipulated. Flashing happens either in a glory hole or furnace. 2) Fins of glass that ooze into mold cracks during a kiln process. The solidified flashing is generally removed when a casting is coldworked. 124

Glassblowing: The forming of glass by inflation; air is blown through a metal tube or blowpipe into a molten mass of glass attached to the opposite end of the pipe. Glory hole: A high-temperature chamber in the hot shop that is used for reheating glass during the forming process so that it can be further manipulated. Graal technique: A glassblowing process by which a glass object is made by building up several layers of colored glass. The cooled forms are carved to reveal the various color layers. Hot shop: A glassworking studio that contains a glass furnace, glory hole, annealers (kilns that cool glass), etc. – all tools necessary to work glass in its molten state such as for glassblowing, sand-casting and solid-sculpting. Iridized glass: Glass whose surface has been chemically treated to create an iridescent appearance. A metallic lustre is either been sprayed (while the glass object is hot) or applied and fused in a kiln. Ancient glass may also exhibit an iridescent surface due to decomposition caused by proximity to moisture. Kiln: Insulated chamber for heating and cooling glass.


Kilnforming: The processes used to form and shape glass in a kiln. The basic processes include fusing, slumping, and kiln-casting. Lampworking: Also referred to as torchworking or flameworking, this process involves the manipulation of glass rods in a torch flame and is most frequently employed to create small, intricate glass forms. Leaded glass: Glass sections that have been connected and secured using lead cane (strips of lead that are soldered together), as in stained glass. Lost-wax casting: The process by which wax models are invested or molded in a heat-resistant plaster-based material, from which the wax is melted or lost. The resulting mold cavity is most often filled with crushed glass, which is melted in a kiln to create a glass object replica of the original wax model. Millefiore: The Italian term meaning “thousand flowers,” that describes the cane slices used in a variety of glassworking applications – most commonly seen in paperweights. Mosaic glass: Glass objects that are created by the fusing multiple preformed glass elements (shards, cane sections, etc.).

Pâte de verre: A term that translates as glass paste and refers to the kiln-casting process inspired by ancient Egyptian cast glass objects, but coined in the 1860s in southern France. The traditional technique involves the melting of colored glass powders that have been mixed with gum Arabic in a mold. Punty rod: A solid metal rod used in the glassblowing process when the introduction of air is no longer or not necessary. Sandblasting: A type of glass engraving or abrading process through which sand is propelled by pressurized air onto a glass surface in order to create texture or a design. Sand-casting: A glass forming technique in which molten glass is ladled into an open mold made from hard-packed sand. Sand-cast glass objects retain a rough-textured granular surface where the sand has come in contact with the hot-poured glass. Slumping: A kilnforming technique through which glass moves either over or into a mold using heat and gravity.

Overlay: The process by which a bubble is blown with color on the inside. The bottom of the bubble is attached to a solid core and then turned inside out, leaving a thin color on the outside.
